A Word from Our Attendees . . .
I went to my first Problogger Conference in 2013. It was a pinnacle year in my blogging journey because I learned that there was much more to blogging than just writing a post and sharing it on Facebook.
Since 2013, I have been to every Problogger event that has been held in QLD. It is the only event in Australia where you get a mixed bag of bloggers in the one venue. I see it as my personal development training for my blog.
Even if you don’t want to make an income from your blog, Problogger Conference is a great way to open your eyes to the world of blogging. I have no doubt that if you don’t have a blog, you will be itching to start one after you have attended the event.
~ Rebecca Senyard
A great event yet again!
Having attended 4-5 times now, the Problogger conference is one of the very few non-industry specific conferences I attend each year that allows me to further my own development around my blog and business.
Great job Darren and the entire team!
~ Aaron Dunn
At Problogger Event you talked about pivoting... your speech must have reached my subconscious on some level and slowly I began to pivot.
Although I have been blogging for over 9 years, I have never really had the success that I have achieved in the last 3 months.
I had a bit of help from other bloggers - all who I met at the Problogger Event!!
Now, I've sold close to 1000 books on pre-sale and the book is not even finished yet. Orders keep coming in everyday and i have achieved the most success that I have had in my blogging career as yet.
~ Sia Aristodou
Is this Event Right for You?
- You're about to start or have recently started your blog - no better time to get the foundations right than at the beginning!
- You've blogged for a while, but you're feeling a bit stuck - revisiting the pillars will help you figure out where to refocus your efforts in your blogging.
- You're looking for some inspiration (Darren and Jeff have it in spades) and love meeting other bloggers, and $199 seems pretty reasonable for that!
- You've mastered the basics of blogging and your main challenges are around scaling and profitability (check out the Mastermind)
- You only want detailed information on Video, SEO, Pinterest or other specific content or channels. Again, the Mastermind would be a better option.
- You've already achieved world domination
- Events and networking are not really your thing
